Tented Adventures – An unforgettable, authentic tented safari experience.

“Experiencing a true South African safari” is probably right up at the top of your bucket list. And for good reason too. Wide open savannahs, diverse terrain, endless open African skies and, of course, the chance to get up close with the Big 5! Join Tented Adventures for an authentic safari experience that you will never forget. From the moment you arrive at camp until you tear yourself away to return to reality, everything will be taken care of... Your camp hosts will greet you with a refreshing welcome drink and then show you to your comfortable safari tent, kitted out with real beds, crisp hotel-grade linen, fans for those hot summer nights and electric blankets if it gets a bit chilly. But don’t settle in just yet – your first game drive awaits!

Our experienced safari guides will take you out in one of our game viewing vehicles so you can tick off your close encounters with the Big 5 on your list, plus come face-to-snout with a whole host of other interesting creatures too. They have extensive knowledge of the area, know where the animals like to hang out, and are more than happy to answer any questions you may have. 

Once the sun has set, we’ll head back to camp where the fires are crackling and your hosts have prepared a mouthwatering feast. Sip on a sundowner in the communal area and relax in the cool evening air, before sitting down under the stars to a delicious bush dinner. 

When the stories have been told and the fires are low, your comfortable “nest” in your safari tent awaits, and you’ll fall asleep to the tranquil sounds of the African wilderness all around you.

Meet Our Team

Marvellous Marvellous

I am Marvellous and I come from a village in Bushbuckridge. I am happy to be in this Industry and I am so appreciative to have been given this opportunity to work for Tented Adventures. It is a dream come true, that I get to work with people from all around the world and giving them great service under the African sky. I love the challenge that work brings me every day, and in the coming years, I would to run a camp like this

Themba Themba

My name is Themba Silinda from Bushbuckridge. At university, I studied crime risk management, which I thought was the route for me, but once I started working at Tented Adventures, there was no turning back. Every day is amazing here, I get to interact with guests from far and wide, I get to learn something new every day. To the rest of the team, I am the Braai master, as I have acquired a special skill for preparing meat for our guests.

Conni Conni

I am Conni Hzinra from Bushbuckridge. Before I started at Tented Adventures, I had no previous experience but, with help from the team, I have learnt so many interesting things. The Team is like a family to me, which I am grateful to be a part of. Now I’m excited to get up every day and go to the job I love and soon in the near future I would like to obtain my field guide qualifications.

Fortunate Fortunate

My name is Fortunate Moshao from Kabokweni. It brings me immense pleasure to work for this company, Tented Adventures. I am a very hard-working person and am extremely passionate about what I do. I enjoy meeting people from all round the world, and I am blessed to work with such an amazing team. Soon, I would like to take on a management role and make a difference in the company, that will take it to the next level.

Jason Jason

I am Jason Branford, I am an extremely out going and fun person to be around. I love anything outdoors especially when it comes to nature. I have had a passion for teaching and sharing knowledge with people for long time, and working for Tented Adventures has given me best of both worlds. I don’t see myself living and working anywhere else.

Enock Enock

I have started as a game tracker at a tender age, my father was a guide and what he shared with me growing up, made me what I am today. My love for people and nature made me fall in love with field guiding. Meeting people from all walks of life with different cultures makes my love for the job even better. I love sharing the information I know with others and field guiding gives me the opportunity to do so as I have lots to talk about and explain.

Benni Benni

I am 33 and I was born in a village called Dwarsberg. Being born here means that I have been in the bush for most of my life. I have been at TA for 18 months and before that I was an electrical assistant at a local mining company.

I am a really good cook and guests have been trying to get my braai chicken marinade recipe out of me for a while now. But that will always be my secret. I love interacting with guests and listening to the stories they share with us, it's awesome to meet people from all over the world.

Thomas Thomas

I'm 18 years old and I was born in Giyane Limpopo. I joined the Tented Adventures family in October 2017 and am really growing to love the tourism industry, most of all I enjoy interacting with the guests, getting to know them and where they are from. I have a real passion for cooking and I'm sure in short time I will blow Benni's (See above) secret braai chicken marinade out of the water. When I'm not working on my cooking skills you'll find me nose deep in books as I study towards completing my teaching course with UNISA. I see myself growing much further in the tourism industry.

Obakeng Obakeng

I am 28 years old and I was born in a village called Disake. I was working at a local supermarket and studying electrical engineering. And then I joined the Tented Adventures family, I am the most recent member of the team at the Pilanesberg camp and am so happy to be here. I have always wanted to work in the bush and this is my first experience of The Pilanesberg in the hospitality industry. I really enjoy meeting new people and interacting with them.

TA is the best place to work!

Rob Rob

My name is Robert Boyes but they call me Ranger Bob :) I grew up in Joburg but constant trips to the Kruger Park gave me my love of the bush. I enjoy good banter and teaching my guests about the game to the best of my ability. Usually they are after the Big 5 but I am also really passionate about birds. I am now working as Camp Manager for Tented Adventures Pilanesberg and love every moment of it. I get to to live out my two passions – people and nature. It's what I live for. Can't wait to meet all of you all here. And just remember: "Laka in the bush!!"

Barry Barry

I grew up in Pretoria and spent any spare time that I could get my hands on in the bush. After I finished school I worked in the UK as a chef but missed South Africa too much and returned to my love of the bush. I love all aspects of nature, not only the big game. I have a huge passion for the smaller animals (especially snakes) and really believe that looking for the smaller animals will usually lead you to the big ones.

Tented Adventures is an awesome place to be as I get to live my dream and share my passion with new people every day.

Stephan Stephan

I am the camp host at Pretoriuskop and my main duties involve cooking, cleaning as well as hosting guests. I love what I do, everyday I get to meet different people coming from across the world which is so fascinating. We get to share stories, and they often ask me for my recipes, because they so love what I cater for them. My plan is not to stay as a camp host, I want to grow and learn the industry become one of Tented Adenture's best safari guides as well as a top senior manager. With my charisma and the enthusiasm, I believe I have what it takes. Can't wait to meet you!
